General Fire Safety Information

At most campuses a Fire Warden is assigned to each floor and is responsible for implementing the fire safety policy and evacuation during an fire emergency.

  • If you notice a fire - pull the fire alarm pull station - do not waste time calling public safety. (Once activated, the alarm goes directly to a central station and they automatically contact NYFD).
  • If a "pull station" is not close to you then,
    • Activate one of the silver wall mounted "Talk-Alert" boxes
    • Dial 1-4444 on a main campus telephone
    • Dial 911 on your cell phone.
    • Fire extinguishers are located on all floors of all buildings.
  • A Fire Warden is assigned to each floor and is responsible for implementing the fire safety policy and evacuation during an fire emergency. 
  • It is important to follow their instructions, they are there for your safety
  • Stairway "A" is the primary staircase to be used for evacuation, unless told otherwise.
  • Disabled individuals should enter the stairway and stay on the landing of their floor. NYFD will come and get you!
  • A delay in public address announcements after a fire alarm sounds is usually because public safety is investigating the source of the alarm to determine what needs to be done.
    • Always listen for public address announcements.
  • If there is a fire or smoke condition in, or near an elevator shaft, the fire alarms will sound on all floors.
    • Elevators will get automatically re-called to the lowest floor/lobby.
  • Some elevators may be re-called to the main floor due to a fire.
  • After a fire alarm is activated, the alarm and the elevators can not be reset until the NY Fire Department authorizes it and gives the "all clear".
  • Evacuations may only occur on the "fire floor" and one floor above, and one floor below and not the entire building.
  • Organized "Fire Brigades" will respond to the floor below the fire floor.
